Johnny Briggs: Coronation Street Legend – 29 March 2021 – 29/3/2021 – Monday – ITV

Coronation Street mourned the loss of one of the show’s true icons when actor Johnny Briggs passed away last month

For 30 years – between 1976 to 2006 – actor Johnny was the original cockney on the cobbles, Mike Baldwin. Known for his love of whisky and women, factory boss Mike was the southern rogue who charmed his way through a colourful life in Weatherfield.

This special tribute programme celebrates the life of Johnny and his enduring Corrie character. Street stars past and present recall working with a cast legend, and famous fans of the show take a fond look back at some of Mike’s biggest ever storylines; including his affair with Deirdre Barlow and bitter rivalry with her husband Ken, a love triangle that had the whole nation gripped.
